Blaxploitation film about a former professional football player who becomes a bounty hunter in Los Angeles.
Truck is a bounty hunter who gets a job to track down a guy named Gator. When he and his partner find him, a chase ensues and Gator is killed. This makes Gator's woman, Dorinda, very angry and she puts a hit on Truck. The man who agrees to kill Truck is named Blue. The question is whether Truck can survive with Blue and his gang on his trail.
Fred Williamson may have looked better chomping a cigar, and Jim Brown could bust more heads with his ten-yard stare. But in my book neither one holds a candle to Isaac Hayes' performance in this early Jonathan Kaplan movie: like a blend of John Shaft and Jim Rockford, Hayes suggests the kind of action hero Ving Rhames could be if he had a light, self-deprecating sense of humor. Funnier, more likable and human than the other guys who became blaxploitation stars, Hayes plays a "skip tracer" tracking a vicious pimp who's on a sociopathic spree. Kaplan's work is crisp; Michael Kahn, early in his career, shows you why he's forever re-hired as editor by Steven Spielberg; the movie is swift and packed with ripe characterizations and sharp dialogue that are otherwise only found in Jack Hill's acknowledged classics with Pam Grier. So why has this movie gotten the bum's rush?
The string of blaxploitation movies continued with Jonathan Kaplan's "Truck Turner", starring Isaac Hayes as a football player looking for a bail-jumping pimp. The trailer proclaims HE MAKES A HEALTHY LIVING...BY MAKING LIVING UNHEALTHY! The movie has everything that you might expect in such a movie. What I thought was really neat was the cast. Aside from Hayes (known to later generations as Chef on "South Park"), there's Nichelle Nichols (Uhura on "Star Trek"), Scatman Crothers (Dick Hallorann in "The Shining"), and character actor Dick Miller, who often plays a character named Walter Paisley, but has also appeared in every one of Joe Dante's movies.
All in all, a really fun flick. 646f9e108c
